Beautiful timberline brown enamel stove. Enamel is very durable. Well made, good fit and finish and very heavy stove. Front door shuts tight and and latch/hinges are durable and adjustable if needed. Heats most of my open floor plan, two story new house.
Would like a little more burn time overnight but usually have hot coals in the morning to restart. Because of gap between firebox and cook top you can only warm food, not really for cooking. No place to put thermometer on stove if you desire to have one. Really being picky here as none of these cons are deal breakers for me.
Have been burning a wood stove for 30 years, mostly inserts ranging from Silent Flame to Fisher. Just finished 1/2 season of burning and there's definitely a learning curve using the high efficiency Hampton. Was not necessarily looking for a Regency/Hampton but a good deal presented itself as we were building our new house. I must say its a pleasure to burn. Would buy again if needed. As with any modern wood stove, seasoned wood is key.
